Does Money Buy Happiness? If So, How Much?


Has money bought the Koch brothers happiness? Hard to say. However, evidence is mounting that, beyond a certain annual income, more money does not lead to more happiness. Our guest, Jonathan Clements, is a Wall Street Journal Weekend columnist and a money management expert. He discloses research that shows what annual income achieves maximum happiness and why more money than that leads to a disconnect with happiness. It’s an interesting conversation and he discusses the very basic steps for beginning money management starting as low as $2 a day. You’ll never hear a more accessible financial expert than Jonathan Clements.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
